DALLAS, TX, and DUBAI, UAE, June 23, 2020— DerbySoft, a leader in high-performance distribution services to the global hotel industry, and Illusions Online, a global travel technology company and a leader in enterprise cloud solutions for hotel chains, tour operators and destination management companies, have recently expanded their partnership to allow seamless access of both supply and demand partners within their combined worldwide network.
Based in Dubai, Illusions first connected to DerbySoft in 2016 to access DerbySoft’s extensive portfolio of hotel chains. The partnership has grown and expanded to include multiple connections allowing for more efficient connectivity to DerbySoft’s hotel suppliers. Illusions is also utilizing DerbySoft’s Content Suite for hotel content.
Most recently, Derbysoft integrated and pushed live a custom connection to iWTX, Illusions’ global marketplace of dynamic hotel chains. With this connection, the global distributors connected to DerbySoft will gain access to Illusions’ portfolio of global hotels.
“We have enjoyed a very special relationship with the entire team at Derbysoft. We have on-boarded thousands of hotels in iWTX, helping hotels scale, using our unique distribution platform,” remarked Faisal Memon, Founder and CEO of Illusions Online. “I am extremely excited to have Derbysoft build the reverse connection to iWTX as a supply partner. This means, all Derbysoft distributors can gain access to our global product portfolio of dynamic hotel chains, over a connection that already exists.”
This new connection will bring the most-up-to-date ARI (availability, rates and inventory) from thousands of suppliers between DerbySoft and Illusions. This expanded partnership confirms the mission of both companies who want to make the travel business easier by connecting suppliers and distributors with the most accurate information to improve the success of our mutual partners.
“Illusions has been a partner with DerbySoft for many years, and I am excited to see this evolve into a deep and meaningful relationship that will benefit our mutual supply and demand customers at a time when the industry needs it the most,” states Duane Overgaard, President of Connectivity for DerbySoft. “This partnership firmly supports our goal to make the travel business easier.”
